Impact: Slammiversary Matches, Eli Drake Update, Kongo Kong Done


Two matches have been announced for Slammiversary XVII, which will take place on July 7 in Dallas, TX.

– Impact World Championship: Brian Cage (c) vs. Michael Elgin

– Impact X Division Championship: Rich Swann (c) vs. Johnny Impact

Eli Drake

Eli Drake announced yesterday that he’s now officially a free agent, free from his Impact contract.

Impact had been preventing Drake from signing elsewhere because of what they felt was a “breach of contract,” but that situation has now been worked out.

An Impact executive told PWInsider, “We are happy to have the issue resolved and we wish Eli Drake well going forward.”

Kongo Kong

Kongo Kong is “done” with Impact, according to PWInsider. It’s not clear exactly why.

His last match in Impact was at the March 23 TV tapings, where he lost to Zachary Wentz.
